While Sparky's attempts to raise fast food to a higher level, the Burger Joint wants to bring it back down to earth. Sequestered behind floor-to-ceiling curtains in the lobby of Le Parker Meridien hotel, the joint is the elegant hostelry's dirty little secret, offering guests—and anyone else who can find it—a $7.81 (including tax!) alternative to its own $20 room-service burger. Once you locate the entrance and push apart the drapes, half expecting a butler from Eyes Wide Shut to appear and ask you for the password, you'll find a coffee shop with faux-wood paneling, vinyl booths, and a few sports-page photos taped to the walls. The timeworn greasy-spooniness is uncannily convincing.


The Burger Joint serves beer by the pitcher for $17.
